Augusta commissioners say no deal to First Tee
Commissioner rejecting a proposal to have the city team up with first tee to manage the Patch golf course.
First tee officials said to make the deal work the Patch needed a two million dollar renovation, after the vote tonight officials said in its current condition the course should not even be open.
"I think they should close it if they're not going to go along with a fair deal because the truth of the matter is they continue to have control of the course control of the capital improvements but you know I don't understand it what kind of shape is it in now awful," said Paul Simon representing First Tee.
The vote leaves the golf course in its current state being run by the city on a shoe string budget.
Three commissioners were out at the time of the vote so the issue is expected to come back in two weeks for another vote.
